Balding - to accept, or not to accept:
If you live long enough, nearly every man in your peer group will be balding or bald. In fact, two-thirds of all men over age 50 show signs of balding and hair loss.
That being said, the technology to treat balding, reduce balding, and reverse balding is better than ever, and it continues to progress forward in the 2020s.
Balding, especially at first, and especially if you're young, can feel very traumatic, no matter how common it may be. If balding significantly weakens your confidence, then you may want to consider one of the many ways to slow down, stop, and/or reverse balding, although individual results always vary.
"Defensive medications" like finasteride and minoxidil are FDA-approved and, in some men, can help slow down or stop hair loss. If you're looking for a more dramatic result, hair transplants can tangibly restore a much younger hairline.
Balding is very personal, and while you're certainly in good company if you're balding, the very personal question of "should I just go bald" is increasingly becoming more of an option: you can choose to accept, which of course is just fine, or you can choose to fight against it with some of the most advanced medications and technology.
